Cashmere is one of the most prized and rare fibers. Extremely soft, lightweight, and warm, it features low-bulk and high-loft fibers. Cashmere yarns are ultrafine because cashmere goat hairs are seven times thinner than sheep wool. The flexible yarns knit, crochet, and weave with grace and beauty. Using cashmere with simple patterns results in gorgeous art, even for beginners. Cashmere receives dyes well, for gorgeous colors, and is worth every penny.
